Conner McCallum’s work primarily focuses on McSilver Institute’s technical assistance initiatives, including the Community Technical Assistance Center (CTAC), the Managed Care Technical Assistance Center (MCTAC), and the Managed Care Community of Practice (MC-COP). Through these projects, McCallum supports the development and presentation of trainings and resources for behavioral health providers and providers serving individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities throughout New York State.
Before joining the McSilver Institute, McCallum worked as a paralegal, but her interest in behavioral health led her to take undergraduate classes at UC Berkeley in psychology with a focus on stress and coping, which further inspired her to pursue a career related to behavioral health care. Her work at the McSilver Institute enables her to pursue her passion for behavioral health while maintaining her interest in law and public policy. McCallum holds a BA degree in Communications and Art History from Fordham University.
